K Sports travelled to Folkstone this weekend for a late afternoon game. Kobs were ready to battle hard to look for an improvement on the score line from the previous week. K Sports found themselves under the pressure of the Folkstone forward line soon into the first half but were able to intercept the balls and close down the oppositions attempts at progressing towards goal. The K Sports defensive line of Frampton, Wyatt and Ayres, stood strong and were guided by keeper Nichols to keep the ball out of the danger zone.
As the first half began to come to an end, the ball was cleared from Becki Austin out from the top of the defensive D, and found its way up the pitch into the attacking play; K Sports pressed the attacking D and Kerry Fowler found herself with the ball on the perimeter of the D, where she passed the ball to Sharon McAllan, who professionally found Jo Fowler in front of the goal. The Folkstone’s goalies quick reactions blocked J.Fowlers initial shot, but Fowler found her composure, and was able to slot the rebounded ball past the goalkeeper and into the goal. 1 nil to Kobs.
As the second half started, it was obvious that Folkstone were determined to find the equaliser, however K Sports were just as determined to protect their lead. J.Fowler found herself supporting the defensive line and the midfield which consisted of Swinson, Wood and Percival worked hard to continue the game play throughout the pitch. Youngster Shona McAllan continued to battle hard to win the ball back and send it back into K Sports attacking D. Kobs demonstrated their team determination in protecting the ball and ensuring the game stayed in our favour and the game ended in a 1-0 victory.
It is with no doubt that the whole team worked extremely hard this weekend, and were deserving of their three points!
